GDC condemns “inhuman treatment” of Africans in China

Apr 22, 2020, 1:38 PM

The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) in a press release has condemned “in the strongest word the inhuman treatment meted on Africans by the people of China.”

“Such inhuman treatment should not have a place in the 21st century, therefore, the GDC is urging all of Africa to stand firm and be united in action against the people of China to end such brutal acts.”

GDC urges the government of The Gambia to take all necessary steps in protecting Gambians currently residing in China and make sure their safety and security is guaranteed by the government of China and that they are treated equally in the manner in which Chinese are respectfully treated in The Gambia.

“We must know that our development relies on our people, resources, education, and science; therefore, partnership with China must be founded on grounds of mutual respect and interest of our different people and thereby accepting our differences as our strength.”

“China and her people should understand that Africa buys a significant share of their export but also feed the people of China with our natural resources including our seas and forest, therefore the people of China should look for other economic partners if they believe that black people are inferior to Chinese.”

“The GDC is urging the youths of Africa to be ready to stand firm against such inhuman attitudes from the people of China and note that China must treat black people in the same way as they treat their fellow Chinese. Where this cannot be done, Africa must look for other partners since we cannot return such brutality to them.”

“It is time that Africans desist from negotiating with some of their so called leaders and get them develop the continent or better still change them for others that can stand up to those who want to brutalize black people around the world.”

“The GDC stands in solidarity with victims being subjected to inhuman treatment by the people of China, being either African or Asian, Black or White.”
